38 weeks tomorrow!!

Wow I'll be 38 wks tomorrow! That's only 2 weeks till I'm 40 wks! I can't believe it!! I went early with all the boys, Jake 6 dys early, Tyee 7 dys early and Luke 8 dys early. So if I follow pattern I could be holding my little girl next Sunday! I personally think her actual due date is closer to April 25-26 not the 21st, but what's a few days anyway lol. I think we're all prepared. Since I don't have a room to set up or a crib all we've really had to do is wash clothes and put them in the dresser. We've done that, although haven't taken tags off the new clothes just washed the hand-me-downs we got from Tina and my sister-in-law Heather.... just in case she is actually a HE! Although I'm really feeling like it is a girl and have for quite some time so I'm sure she is ;) I've done alot of cooking and preparing for meals for after the baby is born. I think I just about bankrupt us just getting food prepared for afterwards lol. But I seriously won't have to cook for WEEKS! And any shopping from now on out is basically for milk and bread and produce so I'm feeling VERY prepared in that department. I have 4 trays of baked ziti, 2 big trays of lazana, chopped chicken ready for different meals, ground turkey with onions precooked and frozen for different meals, enchilada pie filling, mexican cornbread filling, .... I think that's it. But Tina has already stocked us up with lots of frozen veggies and little pizzas and such and Teresa and Mercedes want to make a few meals for us to freeze as well. Then not to mention the couple of people from church that most likely will be making us dinner ... I definitly won't be doing real cooking for weeks!!! At least!! Good thing we have a huge freezer!

So Jason and I found a big house, new construction, not finished but livable, that went under forecloser that we think we can almost afford. I told Jason if we were able to get this house it would be a lifetime of finishing it and furnishing it lol. It's a 5 bedrm, 2 1/2 bath, full basement, 3 car garage, office, wrap around porch, more rooms on the first level that we have no idea what we could do with them! It really is sad to see this beautiful home that the previous owners were not able to finish. I'm sure it won't stay on the market for long, if we had our house sold we'd definitly put a bid on the house and work our butts off finishing the house. We did have an open house on Sat. and there was a couple that came through and they said they did like the house, but no offers yet. We are also waiting on a single mother with 2 children to take a look at our house when she comes to visit from Fl. Of course she's coming when the baby is due so I'm kinda hoping she makes her arrival before the lady comes.

That's really all that's been going on lately. Of course besides the normal everyday stuff with the boys and school and Jake starting T-ball. They are getting more and more excited about their sister coming. They will actually be attending the birth (they have for each birth) Jake is looking forward to cutting the cord. He's such a trooper. We've talked alot about birth and some of the amazing things and some of the gross things so I think he's prepared, he remembers Luke's birth so I know he'll be great. Tyee is the type that is pretty good about it all. We watched some births on YouTube, decent ones, and they really were amazed and thought it was so neat and I think helped them tons to look more forward to seeing their sister be born. (don't worry I'm a very quiet woman in labor so there's no screaming and yelling, I might say it hurts but the boys are also aware that it will hurt mommy but it will be ok) I'm so proud of them! I think it goes to show that children can handle more than we think they can, they are strong people, we just don't give them enough credit. So that's about it! I think I'm ready for this little one but then again, are we ever truely ready!! LOL
